You can wait for the x1 mk2. They said philips will improve the hi and add replaceable pads.
Although you might wait till next year.

I guess I can wait untill then since a new pair of cans is not that high of a priority.(a new phone and desktop are at the moment)
For now I'll just buy a new set of earpads for my 558's.

I think you're getting a little ahead of things.

As long as the revision has replaceable pads then I'm a happy camper.smily_headphones1.gif

Chico, i swear i read it somewhere on the x1 thread that philips will improve the hi...
You can search it or maybe i'm just wrong...
Btw how is the t90 and k712 so far? I'm surprised you already planning a new hifi cans already. Wished i got more income to afford it...

Look at the second quote above.  I'm pretty sure that's the only mention of it.

Ah... OK then. Again... its my English understanding problem...

Seeing how the X1 perform, I wished Philips can pursue more high end Mid-fi cans, maybe Z1... Just daydreaming.

Is the headband cushion on the 558 replaceable? It's a little loose in the middle and is starting to wear out.

On another note I'm suprized how long I used these, over a year now and they still work.(give them props for build quality)

I believe you can probably rip it off and stick on a new one... as I believe they're glued on... though, not fully certain.
post #17290 of 27826
It looks like its glue. You know where i can buy a spare set?

You probably have to go to the Sennheiser website and order the part. Shouldn't be expensive.

This guide is truly wonderful. It first lead me to the sens hd598 and recently to the k702 annies. Both are fantastic. 

 

I have a question, is it possible to remove the hiss from mixamps? I used to be only a pc gamer, but since I started console gaming with some friends, I picked up a mixamp. But I have been pretty let down with its performance compared to my pc setup. 

 

What I was thinking, maybe using the mixamp as a preamp might remove the hiss? But before I spend the money I wanted to see if anybody has experience with that setup. 

post #17293 of 27826

Are you using an amp with the Annies? If not you are really missing out. I set my mixamp volume to 60%-70% and my Schiit Audio Magni I use for volume control. Putting the amp in the mix really changes the sound of the Annies. 

post #17294 of 27826

So Chicolom,

 

after you cleansed your inventory (which you already plan to start of course :evil: ): K812 or HD 800? 

post #17295 of 27826
I also notice hiss when I use my 558's with the mixamp mostly when I turn the volume nob, also the sound switches from left to right when I do though maybe I have a bad module.
